Rosh Hashanah Bag Assembly & Delivery Events

All Regions Times/Dates Vary By Region

September 13, 2019 to September 22, 2019

Create a Sweet New Year for All!

Each year, caring volunteers gather to assemble and deliver holiday bags filled with festive food and goodies for hundreds of JFCS clients.

A Mitzvah for the Whole Family!

Children of all ages enjoy coloring, activities, and games as well as a meaningful opportunity to participate in brightening the holidays for those in need. Whether decorating or stuffing bags at an assembly event, or joining parents in hand delivering gifts to clients in need, there is fun and learning for toddlers to teens.

Join us for this volunteer tradition in which the entire family can participate (unless age-group otherwise noted.)
